Good call on the 5/10/70 show! I overlooked that one.

That's a remarkable-sounding jam in the 7/7/69 link, I missed that story. Where the heck was Bear, did he stop recording? I wonder if there are other descriptions of that show....

Where WAS Bear?? Good question, this sounds like a jam for the ages for sure. As far as other accounts of this show, from THIS account I doubt you would find very many LUCID accounts of that night. Thank goodness the author wrote it all down, it's a very entertaining read! Wish I could have been there..
While this next one is a NRPS show played shortly after Pigpen died, it features Jerry, Bobby, Keith & Donna live at Madison Square Garden. It is also a really fine show and worth checking out sometime. Four band members nearly accounts for the whole Grateful Dead, so I think it is worth mentioning.

Jerry & Bobby played a Conneticut Allman Brothers show in July '72 also, and Jerry, Bobby & Ronnie Montrose joined the ABB on 6/9/73 for Mountain Jam during the Allman's closing set.

Actually, 3/18/73 was the very first show I mentioned in my post!
Guess I should've provided the link, but when I saw that the streaming files were screwed up, I decided not to....

I did look for other accounts of the 7/7/69 jam since that story seemed too good to be true - and found one from a 15-year-old who got some acid from Bear and got so fried he didn't come back to consciousness til the next day - only had a vague memory of Jerry & Duane Allman playing something....
Sounds like the Jerry & the Allmans story could be a whole thread in itself! Kind of like the Dec '70 Crosby recordings, which I thought would be better to discuss separately someday.
